About The Company

    • Determine the “content angle” that can make our article unique and stand out from the rest.
  • Drafting content briefs that outline the article structure
    • Coming up with headings (H2s) for articles.
    • Including bullet points of what writers should focus on/not focus on under those headings.
    • Explaining search intent for writers so they understand who will be reading the content.
